Plan Your Visit

Thousands of people visit Ely Cathedral every year

This Cathedral was built as an offering to God by the monks who lived here. The music and worship that have been practised here ever since are a continuation of that offering. This is a very special place and we hope you find it a source of blessing, wonder and inspiration.
